Shares of Whole Foods Market surge 37% after two analysts upgraded the largest U.S. organic grocer to a buy in the wake of its earnings report.

"In summary this quarter we saw much better-than-expected cost containment, leveraging of labor costs, further capex cuts, plans to rationalize the store base and positive free cash flow," wrote Pali Capital analyst Bob Summers, who raised his rating to buy from sell and lifted his stock-price target to $15 from $8.

Yesterday Whole Foods called the nation's raw milk providers to inform us that as of today, Saturday March 13 at 8 am, they will be removing all raw milk from their shelves. Their actions make it seem like a health emergency, and it is not.

This is not a safety issue. Our wholesome and delicious raw milk is still available at local stores throughout CA. As a very large corporation, Whole Foods must respond to the decisions of their board of directors.

A Whole Foods ban on seafood starts this week. The organic and natural food superstore will no longer carry fish that have been labeled unsustainable by the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch and the Blue Ocean Institute.

Whole Foods had already stopped stocking fish such as orange roughy, shark, bluefin tuna and most marlin. While Whole Foods' elimination of red-rated fish has been popular with environmentalists and eco-friendly consumers, fisherman, mostly based in New England ports, will take a serious financial hit due to the ban, according to a report in the New York Times.

Whole Foods deceives consumers into unknowingly buying GMOs while financially supporting a GMO supply chain that ultimately enriches Monsanto, charges an explosive new undercover sting video released by Organic Spies.

The video features secret camera footage from a dozen Whole Foods stores in the Los Angeles area, capturing Whole Foods employees lying on camera about the genetically engineered ingredients found in products sold at Whole Foods. "It's against our policy to carry anything that's grown with GMOs in it," says one employee, caught on camera. But according to Organic Spies, anywhere from 20% - 30% of Whole Foods products contain GMOs.

Frankly, I seldom shop WFM. The main reason is because there's a locally owned and operated business in my community that sells only natural and organic food and other supplies.

NGVC was built on the premise that consumers should have access to affordable, high-quality foods and dietary supplements, with nutritional guidance to help them support their own health. The family-run store has grown into a successful national chain with locations across Colorado, Texas, Utah, Wyoming, Oklahoma, Missouri, New Mexico, Montana, Kansas, Idaho, Nebraska, Arizona and Oregon. Altogether, the company has 1,800 employees.

Three years ago, John Mackey angered many of his Whole Foods consumer base by equating ObamaCare with socialism and arguing that health-care reform should use capitalism as a lever for real improvement.

Now, however, the CEO and co-founder of the health-food chain wants to clarify his earlier comments. Technically, ObamaCare is actually an example of another kind of government altogether: What he doesn't think is right is President Obama's health overhaul and the new costs that coverage requirements will place on businesses. When Inskeep asks him if he still thinks the health law is a form of socialism, as he's said before, Mackey responds: "Technically speaking, it's more like fascism. Socialism is where the government owns the means of production. In fascism, the government doesn't own the means of production, but they do control it - and that's what's happening with our health care programs and these reforms."

Chipotle's anti-GMO (genetically modified organism) mission coincided with a 30% jump in fourth quarter profits, and adaptable restaurant chains may soon try to cash in on the positive public response to going GMO-free.

Are there any other companies that could pull off the transition to GMO-free menus as well as Chipotle? And even if they can, would they see the same positive results?

The idea of that we would need the Government to provide us even the most essential things like infrastructure or postal services and that without Government nothing would get done is a terrible fallacy.

This is really fascinating. I'v never understood subsidies or the growing dependence on government help. If something can't stand on it's own, it means people aren't willing to pay for it. So why should the gov't force the people to pay for it? Someone will come along and do it better or more efficiently. It's always been the case in history. Look at the US Post Service. It's a joke. We spend $5 billion a year subsidizing its losses, yet FedEx and UPS and DHL and all of the other carriers around the globe are raking in BILLIONS in PROFITS. So why do we still allow this to happen? Why don't we demand that the USPS rebuilds itself to be more efficient and economical instead of demanding that the people cover their losses?
